Mini Llama Pinata

By: Lucy Foxworth from Paper Glitter Glue

"With just a few materials - cardboard, glue, masking tape, and crepe paper - you can make this adorable mini Llama Pinata that has a secret gift compartment under the saddle. You could send a message or put a few tiny gifts or candy inside to delight anyone. There is a full, detailed tutorial with the free pattern (including a short video even) telling you exactly how to make this cute miniature llama gift box. "

  4. Tape the top llama piece with the saddle shape cut out to the top of the pinata.

  5. Prime the little llama with white primer if you like so the tape won't show through the crepe paper.
